UCLA Bruins head coach Jim Mora stated Thursday that running back Jordon James is likely to sit out his third consecutive game Saturday as the team heads to Eugene for a matchup with No. 2 Oregon.

102413-JamesWithout its leading rusher, UCLA’s running game has been dismal collecting 152 yards in two games in a win against the California Golden Bears that was followed by a loss to the Stanford Cardinal.

James alone is averaging 115.75 yards/game in four contests played, but that includes a 39 yard performance in UCLA’s victory over the Utah Utes on Oct. 3, where he suffered his injury. Discounting that game he has rushed for 141.3 yards/game, nearly 11 yards fewer than the Bruins have put up in two weeks without him.
